Your employees continue to receive regular wages for the hours they work along with their WorkShare benefits.
During their participation in WorkShare, your employees:
Receive a percentage of their regular salary
If they work 80% of their regular work week, they receive 80% of their salary
Receive unemployment insurance (UI) benefits along with their reduced wages
UI benefits are a percentage of their benefit rate equal to the percentage of the reduction in their hours. Each employee's benefit rate is calculated based on past earnings.
Receive a percentage of a dependency allowance under certain conditions
An allowance of $25 per dependent child is available for workers who are the main or sole provider for any children who are:
Under the age of 18
Over the age of 18 and incapacitated due to a mental or physical disability
Under the age of 24 and a full-time student at an educational institution
If a worker's hours are reduced by 20% and they have dependent children, they can receive 20% of the regular dependency allowance and 20% of their unemployment benefits. They also continue to receive their regular health insurance benefits.
If a worker has a part-time second job, Workshare disregards much of those earnings before any deductions are made from the worker's WorkShare benefits.
WorkShare is voluntary and a worker can decline participation.
The reduction percentage you outlined on your WorkShare agreement indicates your workers' weekly benefits.
Report any discrepancy in hours to the DUA WorkShare unit such as a worker working:
If the workers did not work the set number of hours for a certain week, they can supplement by using other paid leave for a part of the week to make up for it.
Upon full layoff, the worker becomes eligible for their full weekly unemployment insurance benefit amount. The maximum benefit credit of unemployment insurance benefits will be reduced by the amount of WorkShare benefits they have received. Employers must report any layoff by noon on the Friday before the layoff. This way, affected workers get their full weekly benefit amount instead of the reduced benefit amount.
The WorkShare plan is valid for 52 weeks. You can modify or cancel your plan any time.
